Ninth in the Modesty Blaise series, and the one I accidentally read first! Modesty rescues a man from the ocean while she's sailing, and he turns out to be Luke Fletcher, a genius artist who was reported dead several weeks earlier. Modesty and Willie get caught up in trying to figure out who dumped Fletcher into the ocean, why people are trying to kill him, and what they can do to protect him.

It's an adventure, not a mystery -- we know whodunit well before the characters did -- but there are still things to surprise the reader, and I was just as surprised at the twist as Modesty and Willie were. Also, the villains in this one were incredibly over-the-top, but entertaining.
